JKG Group Expands Product Packaging Services Market
Acquisition Brings Full Suite of Services to Central Florida
April 3, 2018 – JKG Group today announced the company is now offering product packaging and other services to businesses in Central Florida. JKG Group provides product packaging services that include design, prototyping, printing, finishing, storage, kitting and fulfillment for products ranging from health, beauty and other personal care items, to jewelry, handbags and luxury retail goods, to sample packs and sachets used for promotional purposes.
“Custom product packaging is one of our specialties, and we’ve developed outstanding designs for well-known national cosmetics and beauty products firms as well as for some very creative entrepreneurs right here in South Florida,” said Adam Gittlin, president of JKG Group. “The product packaging market is robust and dynamic, and we’re pleased to be able to extend our expertise to formulators, laboratories, retailers and entrepreneurs in the Orlando and Tampa markets.”
After topping $25 Billion in 2016, the global market for personal care packaging alone is expected to reach $34.3 Billion by 2022 and $44.2 Billion by 2024, according to independent research reports by Research and Markets and Variant Market Research.
Product packaging serves many functions. Great packaging captures buyer attention on crowded shelves to increase a brand’s competitive edge. Refreshed packaging can breathe new life into existing products, and exciting new designs are vital to introduce new products. Structurally well-designed packaging reduces damage, contamination and theft in transit, in storage, and in store. Captivating packaging can also improve the impact of promotional mailings by boosting response rates. JKG Group packaging services were featured in a March 2018 article by Packaging World, one of the packaging industry’s leading publications. (See article below.)

How Digital Technology Has Transformed Direct MailJKG Group Leverages Certified Digital Printing for Highly Targeted Direct Mail Campaigns
January 31, 2018 – JKG Group mails millions of direct mail pieces, and digital printing powers the quality, speed and efficiency of many of those campaigns. Today, JKG Group announced that the newest addition to its digital pressroom, a Xerox iGen 5 digital press, has been certified to Idealliance G7 Master Colorspace compliance standards.
“Digital technology has completely transformed the commercial printing industry and made it more relevant than ever,” said Adam Gittlin, president of JKG Group. “Today’s sophisticated, computer-driven digital presses enable direct mail campaigns to be personalized on the fly, empowering one-to-one and niche marketing strategies, and helping to control production costs for our clients.”
Digital technology underlies JKG Group’s internal operations. It also enables valuable synergies between services such as printing and direct mail, graphic design and custom product packaging, and kitting and fulfillment.
Applications for digital printing range from menus for restaurant chains with thousands of locations, to promotional flyers for nationwide retailers and real estate firms, to travel catalogs for the world’s largest cruise lines. For direct mail campaigns, digital presses like the Xerox iGen 5 enable variable data to be printed inline, including names, addresses, even variable graphics and images, without requiring separate print runs or multiple processes.
Direct mail continues to surge as businesses and consumers have become increasingly resistant to overwhelming volumes of email and online messaging. Direct mail outperforms email by 37 percent, according to research by Printing Impressions.
JKG Group provides additional digital technology-based services that further enhance direct mail campaigns, including list acquisition and maintenance, data processing, CRM integration, carrier route targeting, augmented reality, QR codes, barcoding, data analytics and reporting.
